House Trained Puppy Pooping Inside

My 11 month old blue nose Pit Bull has been potty trained pretty much since the day we got him at 6 weeks old, but now he won't stop pooping in the house. He won't pee inside. I let him out whenever he wants until he's ready to come in, which sometimes can be up to a hour. He will usually just end up sniffing around our yard, pee, come back in and a few minutes later he'll poop in the house. He shows no sign of injury or illness.

Similar issue we have a 3 & 1/2 month old puppy from the first night in his kennel no messes and then all of the sudden last Tuesday he started pooping in his kennel. Hes out side all day long when we are both working and comes in to play for a bit and then into his kennel for bed the exact same routine. Nothing has changed and then tonight when I let him in for his playtime before bed he was inside for 10 minutes and pooped on the kitchen floor. I dont understand. Please help
